Sometimes daily life is challenging because it’s just that – daily life. We want to do BIG things in the world, to make change and be changed. Sometimes the routines of daily life sound boring, hollow or even silly in comparison with our big dreams of making a difference in the world.

Big things do happen here at USP. We do have deep, life-challenging conversations with each other. We do encounter God in new and powerful ways as we join Ugandans in worship. Our host families do share pieces of their lives that change our perspectives forever. And these are all wonderful things, experiences that stick with us forever.
But a big part of our time here is just doing daily life. And that is okay.

Living daily life in Uganda eats away at our expectation that we just always be making change and being changed. Yes, we are called to live as people who believe in and work towards a beautiful future. But we are also called to be present and faithful in all of life, in the mundane just as much as in the most pivotal moments.
